I saw some growing outdoors in some really nice raised beds recently but yours are way ahead of the apple sized fruits they had!
I realised as soon as I pressed send how 'Sid James' my comment sounded... But I was genuinely impressed

Great way to use up some wool & give support to your Melons!

The supports look very professional and impressive, I am sure you could get Monty Don interested and start taking orders!
